Overview

No one evades Fate. Especially when the escape route is cracked and full of holes.

As a naïve young woman, Marité Muro nearly drowned in a maelstrom of confusing emotions stirred by two very different men. One whose tortured soul tugged at her heart, another whose scorching touch made her innocent body want...more.

Four years in a Spanish prep school gave her time to gain perspective, and now she's come home to Florida knowing what she wants. The one man she's never been able to forget, and she's ready to prove their age difference is no obstacle.

Vietnam left scars on Brian MacKay, some visible, some invisible-and infinitely more dangerous. His war buddy's sister-in-law has ripened into a tempting, irresistible woman, but she is forbidden fruit. Yet she challenges his resolve until, in a moment of weakness, his demons slip free.

Marité isn't sure why the man who held her closer than skin is suddenly holding her at arm's length, but she isn't afraid to fight for him. Even when someone returns from the past who could destroy everything. Her home. Her family. And Brian's love.

About the Author

Amazon Bestselling author, Victoria Saccenti picked up pencil and paper the moment her childhood book heroes started conversing with her. Sounds a little crazy, but there's no rhyme or reason for inspiration. Back then, she wrote one-act plays and short fairy tales for simple amusement. Today-many...many moons later-her playful stories have grown into family sagas and retro and contemporary romances with an edge. An avid people watcher, she explores in her novels the twist and turns of human interaction, the many facets of love, and all possible happy endings.
Victoria lived overseas and traveled the world for thirty years, and she brings that experience and sense of adventure to her stories. She enjoys taking her reader on a private journey from America to Europe to Southeast Asia and back around.
Central Florida is home. She splits her busy schedule between family and her active muse at Essence Publishing. But if she could convince her husband to sell their home, she would pack up her computer and move to Scotland, a land she adores.

5 Stars ***** Destiny’s Choice is the second book in Victoria Saccenti’s Destiny series and I couldn’t be happier that we got to have Marite’s story. We know from reading the first book that things were not always easy in her life but I loved how she refused to let it bring her down. She is now set on a course to make the one man she has always carried feelings for make her realize that she is no longer a child. Brian has been through the Vietnam war and has the scars inside and outside to prove it. Through it all he has been very careful of the feelings that he carries for his best friends sister in law but now that she is all grown up, it is getting harder. Will she be able to make him realize what is right in front of him before it is to late? This book definitely made you have crazy feeling while reading it, I wanted so bad for them to work out and there were parts where I wasn’t sure it was going to go my way. I also really loved that we got an update on characters from the previous book. I am really glad that I found this author and I plan to keep reading her books as long as she is putting them out!

Reviewed by Arya Fomonyuy for Readers' Favorite Destiny's Choice is Book 2 in the Destiny's Series by Victoria Saccenti, a riveting tale of a love that is as powerful as it is dangerous. Marité Muro might have been infatuated with Brian MacKay when she was very young, but after four years of prep school in Spain, she comes back to Florida different, feeling mature and sure of what she wants, and if there is anything in the world she’d die for, it's to be enfolded in the arms of Brian MacKay. Things could have been easy if MacKay hadn’t served with her brother in Viet Nam. Brian Mackay might be a war hero, but now he has to face a new kind of war; he has to wrestle with the powerful emotions the young Marité Muro stirs in his heart. He knows he shouldn’t want her, but all his defenses are being weakened. How long will he keep up the fight before he finally crumbles under her charm? You’ll love Destiny's Choice if you’re into romance and if you love the kind of setting that mimics the world of Eden, with a serpent tugging at the hem of your clothes and a forbidden fruit that is infinitely inviting. Victoria Saccenti creates beautiful characters and tactfully draws readers into their minds through her powerful and vivid descriptions. Marité Muro is one of those characters readers want to follow in their growth process. She is stubborn and reckless, the kind of character who’ll do anything to get what she wants, but she’s come a long way. The psychological conflict is well-developed in the story, and while it helps the plot to move fast, it also allows readers to connect easily with the characters. It’s a very entertaining and engaging read, a hard-to-put-down kind of book for romance lovers.
